Massachusetts decision will mean little for Minnesota
Nov 19, 2003 —
The Massachusetts Supreme Court yesterday struck down a ban on gay and lesbian marriage. The court gave lawmakers six months to change state laws, a move that could make Massachusetts the first state in the country to legalize same-sex marriage. Phil Duran is the Legal Policy Analyst at OutFront Minnesota, the largest organization serving the state's gay-lesbian-bisexual and trans-gender communities. He says the Massachusetts ruling has revived debate about same-sex marriage in Minnesota, but will have little impact on the state's gay and lesbian couples.
